pop-before-dyndns service using djbdns

tinydyndns is a simple but powerful dynamic DNS solution that uses djbdns. It cooperates with the djbdns package to publish dynamic IP addresses authenticated through POP connections. On successfully authenticated POP connections, the tinydyndns-update program manipulates tinydns' constant database "data.cdb" directly without rebuilding it; this makes the dynamic DNS solution use very few system resources.

Using a POP service for authentication saves the work for installing special client software, since POP clients are available for every common network-aware operating system. To provide the DNS and POP services, tinydyndns cooperates with djbdns, mailfront, and cvm.

The POP service can easily be replaced with other services that provide authentication, such as APOP, IMAPS, ...
